Of course, the big surprise occurs on “The Tyra Show” airing tomorrow because Tyra is a shrewd businesswoman. [Bossip] Keep reading »

Making green, spending green and lacking green are all on everyone’s minds these days, especially since the holidays are approaching and our economy hasn’t crawled out of the crapper, yet. Since this recession may have you a little depressed, we decided to lift your spirits with a bit of music. You know, money makes the world go ’round, but so does a banging beat or hot melody.

Guess who has an early bird copy of Britney Spears’ “Circus,” not due in stores until December 2nd? Me! I can’t tell you how I got it, but it was leaked on the internet this week, so, if you were a fan of pirated music, you could tots find it yourself. Anyway, I’ve been listening to the record on repeat all morning/afternoon and am prepared to give it a grade. A+! All the details of its’ awesomeness, after the jump… Keep reading »
